Tax Treaties and Domestic Law

This book provides an in-depth analysis of the relationships between tax treaties and domestic law. It begins with an analysis of the topic from a constitutional and an international point of view, with a particular emphasis on the provisions laid down by Articles 26 and 27 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties.

Why this book?

Special reports focus on tax treaty issues. In this context, specific problems raised by tax treaties are considered, such as treaty overrides and anti-abuse measures. The interaction between treaty provisions and domestic laws is taken into consideration.

Individual country surveys show how the issues raised by the relationships between tax treaties and domestic law are resolved by tax administrations and courts in selected European and non-European countries.

A specific chapter is devoted to an analysis of how the relationships between tax treaties and domestic law can be improved in the fields of treaty override, treaty residence and anti-abuse measures.
